Ben Jones, MA Accredited MBACP, Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist
There are moments in everybody's life that can feel difficult and overwhelming; where we struggle to understand what is happening but know that something doesn't feel right. Maybe we're left feeling anxious, depressed; struggling with relationships in our life, or a life event such as bereavement or divorce has left us feeling unable to cope. Maybe this has been an issue we've been aware of for years, but feel now is the time to finally deal with it.
Therapy can be a space where such issues can be explored together in a safe and containing space, in order to work through, make sense, and resolve those issues and ultimately to allow us to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
As a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist, I believe that many of our current worries and problems can be explained by the past as well as the here and now. Whether that be past events and relationships that are still impacting on the present; or ways we have learnt to deal with the past potentially still impacting on how we deal with the present. Within therapy, I will help you to understand such patterns as well as helping you to work towards resolving those issues.
I work both short term, which will focus on a specific issue, as well as more open-ended if it is felt that there are several areas you need support with. This can be discussed in an initial meeting.
Further information about me and my services can be found on my website address listed above.
You can book in an initial session to discuss the concerns and have a think about whether my approach is right for you. I'm more than happy to discuss any questions you have over the phone or via email before the meeting.

Counselling via skype:
If you're struggling to reach me for sessions face to face, then I also offer Skype-based counselling. Here you can join me from wherever is most convenient for you, there is no need for travelling to sessions. Maybe you are away from home or travel a lot. By this method, we can still set up regular counselling sessions to suit your life and working pattern

Missed or cancelled sessions are charged for, unless at least 24 hours notice is given.
